Nonpoint Source Pollution, Marine Monitoring and Coral Reef Program
DEQ’s Nonpoint Source Pollution branch protects public health and the environment by controlling polluted runoff from entering receiving waters through the use of best management practices. This branch is responsible for keeping CNMI waters clean and healthy for beneficial uses through demonstrations of best management practices, and engaging in public education awareness campaigns. Each year NPS coordinates and promotes environmental awareness through campaigns such as the Environmental Expo during DEQ's Environmental Awareness Month.
The CNMI Coral Reef Initiative was started in 1997 in conjunction with the first International Year of the Coral Reef. Funding through US Coral Reef Initiative Mangement and Monitoring Grant programs provided renewed momentum for this program. For more information: www.cnmicoralreef.net/
